Medical tape to cover the entire dressing pad. It covers the wound from further infection. At the same time, it still allows the wound to breathe so it can heal faster.


It depends on the terrain. If it happened in a place where there are not that much bushes, trees, and other plant life, josh's method is the best way to go. But if the trail is a bit bushy or there are things that can cause the dressing to get damaged, that's when those waterproof adhesive bandages like NexCare will be the best option.


I completely agree. I usually just use NexCare while we're out hiking or whatever. But when we're back in the Motorhome, I just leave it as is. It heals much faster. Unless it's a really deep wound. Then, I'd use those tapes to help it close.
